American families share their homes with an estimated 68 million dogs. Most people bring home their brand-new puppy full of dreams about having a perfect companion who will be their friend forever. How does a new puppy turn into a great dog and companion? "Not by accident," says Joel Walton, Certified Pet Dog Trainer, lecturer and best-selling author. Joel has over 20 years of experience breeding and raising Labrador Retrievers, training puppies and dogs to be great pets, and helping owners solve their puppy dog dilemmas.
Joel will bring his own unique plan for successful puppy training to help puppy parents do their best to get the dog they always wanted. "Positive Puppy Training Works" is Joel’s latest book on his proven nuts and bolts methods to manage and prevent common puppy problems. House training, chewing, mouthing, jumping up, and learning to be left alone when no one can watch them, will all be addressed. Best of all, his methods are fun, fast, and easy, and use ONLY rewards and positive reinforcement and common sense management techniques. You or your club or school can help puppy and dog owners continue to use positive methods with classes that teach canine etiquette without physical punishment and with love.
"Whether you are planning to get a puppy, or you have your first or your fifth puppy, my methods will help you do the best possible job managing and educating your puppy so he can grow up to be the best possible dog for your family," says Joel. Using Joel’s easy MRE System (Management, Relationship, and Education), puppy parents will have no need for "correcting" unwanted behavior after it develops. Puppies and even older dogs can be guided to better behavior using only kindness and rewards. No puppy or dog owner should miss this chance to learn his unique approach!
